New Hampshire identified its first case of COVID-19 on March 2. NHPR has been tracking new developments since then, as the number of confirmed cases and testing capacity — at public and private labs — has expanded.
As public awareness and public health authorities’ understanding of COVID-19 continues to grow, two basic questions are at the center: How widespread is the virus, and how many people are being monitored or tested for possible infection? Other key questions are shaping the public health response to the pandemic, including: How many people diagnosed with COVID-19 have been hospitalized, and how many have recovered? How many have died? And what regions of New Hampshire have been hit hardest by the virus? Explore the charts below for more perspective on how coronavirus is affecting people across the state.
